I read Elbow's post today and my heart just aches for him. I know the feeling of wanting to just run away as fast and as far as you can to try and get away from yourself. Alas, as I've found out, that doesn't work. You always seem to follow yourself around, and your troubles are none too far behind.
But, if anyone EVER feels like they are absolutely going to lose it unless they get away, please, please don't do anything stupid. If you need a place to get away to for a while, So Cal is not a bad option. I have a spare room (as soon as Roomie gets married). Send me a message and if I'm going to be around, you're more than welcome to use my place as a safehouse while you regain your sanity.
I love you guys and would do anything to help you out. You don't know how much our virtual conversations have truly helped me out over the last month.
